I recall hearing that in the past in Britain and Ireland, some workers (perhaps miners?) got their weekly wages paid out in the pub, much to the dismay of their wives. I don't remember where I heard or read it, and I can't find a reference to it now. Was there any era / branch / area where such was common practice?
